This palce is a must for one meal if you have the money. The surrounds are absolutely stupendous. The service is very good. The food tries to be great but it kind of misses the mark.

As we were staying in the Metropole hotel, we thought we should try the cafe. We sat outside and had a splendid coffee and apple pie for e9,50 each.

15min waiting to get a drink ! 7.50 for this white wine... A nice place but too expensive, and not really a warm atmosphere, outside the "pedestrian zone" of Brussels. I hearded that the Metropole claimed against the City of Brussels as they lost a lot of clients because their clients coudln't arrive to the hotel/café. The problem has been... More

Good selection with a nice tapas selection available. Great if you just was a quick snack with a drink. Service is also very good and setting exquisite.

Overall a nice experience, great beer and wine menu, a few Belgian dishes, attentive staff; however this all comes at a price. Go there for the atmosphere and less for the food.
